Well the sun is shining... the air is cold... and Edwards neck still hurts.
Suz is off to her office and I'm home with my little guy.

I'm not sure, really, what to do about his neck.  Childrens motrim for the pain and to relax the muscles... but should he exercise it? Hot compress? Cold compress... my gut tells me to alternate hot and cold packs but ... ug.  If it wasn't sad, it would be way cute and funny the way he walks around with one shoulder down the other up and his head held like a fabergie egg. 

randome thing: I wish I could press a button and simply stop my face from growing fur forever. I despise shaving... I use a "phillips twin rotary head" shaver... but despite what the half dressed athletic dude in the commercial with the hot blond stroking his face tells ya... shavers simply never approach "well shaved" like a blade does... However, my neck and face burst into flames when I blade shave. It's been at least 10 years since I've shaved my face with a blade except ... yesterday morning...
Exciting huh... d'oh.
any ways... more on that developing story as it ... develops.

It's a morning with nothing to bitch about...
A day free from thinking about things I can't control and people I'm fortunate enough to only know through the news.
I'll watch TV tonight and enjoy it... mostly because it will be some "good show" but also because I want to enjoy it.
My kids will sit with me and play some goofy game cube game.... and I'll be loving every moment.
I'll read email, and my friends pages, and write a few words back and forth...
I'll be proud of the relationships I have and thankful for the opportunities to have them.
The kitchen will smell all garlic-y and yummi at dinner and I'll be spooning some pasta dish into nice bowls,
Serving it to everyone and not worrying about who eats what and how fast...

... life is a whole lot easier when you pick your moments.
It's too easy to forget that you are the master of your own happiness.
And far to easy to simply be a grump or a stump.
There are loads of important or kind'a important things that maybe deserve my attention.
And they will all be there tomorrow.
Tomorrow can wait.
Today, I will remember that I am the boss of me,
and the boss says smell the roses.
